Tell,
I've been reading Blair Jackson's book on Garcia. I just went past the mid 70s and it made mention of 9/28/75 show. It mentioned that the show wasn't announce til day of. How did you hear about it at the time. Just curious how the grapevine functioned at that point in time. Were you living right in SF, or did you have to travel in from someplace outside the city??

Was roadie for HS DEAD cover band...had a gig that Sat night before; it was a Sunday...someone brought word to the little "club" and we all decided to go. It was "rumor" but we acted on it, and yes, East Bay, so we knew the right people, got lucky, whatever. When we arrived to see 50k we knew we'd been right to come. My brother lived in Alaska at the time, had come down for a weekend, but not come "home", and we found out a few yrs later we were both there.
